Carignane is from Feliz Creek to the west of Hopland in Mendocino County. This is a low yield vineyard with vines over 100 years old and dry farmed.
Here is an blend of two very complimentary Rhone grape varieties. Aged 23 months in small neutral oak barrels. Unfined/ unfiltered. Only 90 cases made. C2 ages gracefully, drink now to 2017.
